Good food and solid service. And they know how to make a great Old Fashioned. There were 15 of us in the party and they did a great job.

We had a lovely dinner. Both of us got steaks. I got that Bistro Filet. I liked the steak, but the risotto was okay. My husband got the sirloin, which was great. The potatoes that came with it were fantastic! A nice way to celebrate.

Great food and service, but the beer selection tops any in the area. Great variety of local and regional breweries' offerings on tap, as well as in bottles and cans.

Stopped in late after work day. Nice bar atmosphere and local favorite. Good wine selection. Homemade chips are great. Really good burgers. Wide variety of dining options with excellent choices. It is a popular resturant, be prepared to wait during peak times. Will definitely try...More

Nothing really notable about Chops and Hops. But choices in "downtown" Watkinsville are minimal. So if you dont want to go to Athens and want to take your kids, this is a good choice. Good beer selection and service is quick. The menu has enough...More

We were seated in an upstairs very large room and had only 1 server. Although the server tried the service was slow and therefore the food was cold when served. The restrooms only had room for 1 person at a time and were outdated. The...More

This really is a great place to eat AND drink. I tried to post a link to their website, but apparently that violates the protocols. If you Google "Chop & Hops Athens" you can get a link to their homepage and the full food... More
